Frequently Asked Questions

A will is a legal document that sets out how you wish your assets to be distributed when you die. Also, if you have minor children, it nominates a guardian (or guardians) who will care for them after your death.

Studies have shown that at least 45% of Australians do not have a valid will. Some people wonder whether they need a will at all. To answer the question, consider what can happen if you don’t have a will when you die. If you die without a will, your money, property and other assets divided up according to certain standardised rules (called “intestacy rules”). Most people prefer to take active control over this, rather than have it divided according to a government-imposed formula. Making a will is the only way to ensure your assets will be distributed according to your wishes after you die.

Your will is legally valid if:

  1. you are 18 years or older;
  2. it is in writing: either handwritten, typed or printed;
  3. it is signed by the person making the will in the presence of at least two witnesses who must also sign; and
  4. the will-maker has what is known as “testamentary capacity”. This essentially means they must be of sound mind and not be under any duress when making the will.
The Australian legal system is complex and the laws surrounding wills differ per jurisdiction. As a will is an extremely important document that should be made legal proof and in your best interests, a good lawyer can be a sound inverstment if you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your will is going to be respected. Life changes can make an existing will invalid, such as divorce. In short, a lawyer can help you to ensure your large estates and wishes are met with minimal risk.
